Hi, anybody help please, i have noticed that one of my chickens has got what i think is scaly feet. Will Diatomacious earth powder treat it?

Not successfully. You need to smother the scaly leg mites. You can do that by working vaseline into the scales or using some type of oil, such as mineral oil. But you need to work it under the scales by massaging it in every day for a couple of weeks to break their life cycle.
